Subsistence Counts

Ensuring a Sustainable Future for Arctic Subsistence

The Community Observing Network for Adaptation and Security (CONAS) is an innovative community based observing network (CBON), which connects people bound by a common geographic area – who share similar traditions, values, and ideals – and who are also experiencing environmental and globalization changes. CONAS was established in 2014 as a direct transition from the Bering Sea Sub-Network, which operated from 2007 to 2014.


Stayed tuned for 2017 CONAS results.
